I’ll be the feature poet at the next Blind Poetics, 8pm Monday 12 December, at the Blind Poet on West Nicolson Street.
December’s Blind Poetics aims to see off 2016 with a good kick up the arse. It’s been relentlessly shit so join us in a festive night of spoken word to bring cheer, mince pies and a ho-ho-ho hangover due to drinking all that awful mulled wine.
December’s feature performer is Ryan Van Winkle:
RYAN VAN WINKLE is a poet, live artist, podcaster and critic living in Edinburgh. His second collection, The Good Dark, won the Saltire Society’s 2015 Poetry Book of the Year award. His poems have appeared in New Writing Scotland, The Prairie Schooner and The American Poetry Review.
Plus our seasonal Jingle Bells open mic. Book a 5 minute slot by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here’s how we run the open mic: https://
